A big big plug here for my friend Pastor Dino Rizzo‘s new book – Servolution: Starting a Church Revolution Through Serving, published by Zondervan. Dino pastors Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge, LA.

A couple weeks ago Church at the Gate joined Dino, Healing Place Church and over 245 other churches in 15 different countries in a week of serving our communities – doing simple acts of kindness for the glory of God.  Check out the website. Here’s a video recap of the seven days of servolution… it’s great check it out.

At CATG we gave away 450 free hot dog lunches in our parking lot over three days time at a huge multi-block neighborhood garage sale. I really didn’t think opening the church restrooms up for serial-rummage sale people was a big deal – but when you got-a-go you are real thankful! We offered free-prayer and gave out brochures. We also had teams doing sand bags up in Fargo.

Isaiah 58:10 says “if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday sun.” Buy a dozen copies of Dino’s book, pass it around your church and watch what God does!
